LOVE BUG PINCUSHION MAGAZINE and KIT GIVEAWAY

Last week, I mentioned I was going to do a blog giveaway for my new Love Bug pincushion design, which is featured in the new issue of Stitch Craft Create magazine. The editor kindly let me share these fun magazine photos of Love Bug, a pink and gray ladybug made of wonderful Weeks Dye Works wool and embellished with rick rack, pomp poms, and buttons. The giveaway will be for a copy of the magazine as well as a kit containing the wool to make the ladybug! As noted earlier, I can't guarantee it will be the same wool I used but it will be for a pink and gray ladybug.


When the Stitch Craft Create editor asked me to design a wool project for the magazine's winter issue, the idea for a Valentines-inspired ladybug came to mind. The magazine staff was great to work with. I've loved this magazine since it made its debut last year with a bevy of beautiful projects to spark the imagination, and this issue is no exception. In addition to Love Bug, you will find a potpourri of other projects to warm your winter days—embellished sweaters, a floral scarf, buttoned up pillow, sweetheart cookies, and much more.


Here's how to enter my giveaway: Just leave me a comment telling me what your favorite color combo(s) are. You needn't be an official blog follower but those who are will get one additional entry as my thank you for their support. To get your additional entry, be sure to leave an additional separate comment telling me you are an official follower. I'm opening the giveaway to all, though, to discourage people from feeling like they have to follow to enter. International entries are welcome. The giveaway will end on Friday, December 21, at noon central US time. I'll announce the winner that night and they will have until Sunday, December 23, at noon central US time to claim their prize. Because so many bloggers are non-reply bloggers (meaning there is no return email attached to their email), it will be the winner's responsibility to contact me at the email button under my profile pic since I have no way of contacting them if they should be a non-reply blogger. Due to the holiday, the magazine/kit won't be mailed out until after Christmas. Don't be alarmed if there is a delay in your comments posting. I have to approve all comments before they are published and I'll be out for awhile today. Good luck to all who enter!

  2. Love the cute lady bug pincushion. Today I'm working on 3 pincushions for our January exchange. I don't have a favorite color combination but the pink & brown would be good for me if I were to win the cute little bug. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  19. To narrow it down to one choice is a hard thing for me to do. But at this moment it would probably be gray and yellow. Your pincushion is adorable and I would be tickled "pink" to win. Thanks for the chance.
